Getting the notes right is crucial. Your performance of those notes is equally as crucial. Our favorite performers have more than just the ability to perform notes though they connect with the work they are presenting and the audience they are presenting it to. I've been performing for over 25 years and would love to help you with your performance technique. We'll work on stance, delivery, emotional connection, and creative visualization to help you deliver your best possible performance. I also specialize in helping one overcome stage fright / performance anxiety. I can help you develop the tools necessary to find a relaxation state and that helps you reach your utmost performance potential.

I learned so much from my lessons with Arrica! It was a great balance of learning the basics/ warmups I needed to build a better foundation -- and practicing and learning a song I wanted to focus on. Arrica was supportive, encouraging, and very helpful and specific in her feedback.

I access singing and speaking through movement and resonance. We discover the way your body moves freely, opening up the breath and getting it to flow freely. Then we discover how to access your resonance with that freely flowing breath. Singing and speaking comes easily from there. Lessons with me are a combination of yoga class, anatomy lesson, and actually making sound. I find that if we see our voices as another part of the body that we're training, we see that singing is a movement technique, and looking at it that way actually gives us the freedom to make art with it.

About Gwendolyn

Gwendolyn is my first vocal coach. She is helping me to access the power and confidence in my speaking and singing voice. Using full body movement and vocal exercises she opened up a world of singing for me that I never knew before. She has helped me to discover my body as an instrument (crazy right?!). Gwendolyn has a tremendous amount of knowledge on the mechanics of the body, the way sound is made in our bodies and of course music! I am more powerful and confident in my voice than I have ever been. Gwendolyn is amazing!!
Monika
Working with Gwendolyn brought forth several break throughs even after just one session. She intuitively guided me into alignment, and with such efficacy & ease, my connection to body and breath continues to deepen now, months later. The work I've done on my own or with other teachers came to a (an aligned, you could say) clarity while working with this gifted teacher - definitely recommend!
Joanna
Gwendolyn is the best! I loved her yogalign class. She’s so warm and open and made me feel really comfortable just being myself and trying new things.

Had a great time with Tyler for my first lesson! I came to Tyler looking for advice on getting a better tone similar to Juice Wrld and Trippie Redd. I was really looking for some advice on how to sing in my higher registers without feeling strain. Tyler gave me some great exercises to achieve this and no we are off to the races! Excited to keep these weekly lessons with Tyler, would definitely recommend!

I'm a beginner at guitar and never did I think that after 3 lessons I would be playing the iconic rock songs that I know and love!
